The new trente oiseaux website is up and has already more or less replaced this site on blogger.com. The trente oiseaux online store is integrated in the new website, but has its own URL and can be visited directly.
There is important news regarding the digital distribution of trente oiseaux's releases: we have entered a business partnership with Echopolite.com. Echopolite offer trente oiseaux's catalog of net albums, both single tracks and full albums, in form of streaming and downloads in mp3 and FLAC format. In the near future ordering CDs via Echopolite's website will be possible, too. Trente oiseaux will continue to offer full albums only, for download in wave format and as CDs, so that albums downloaded from trente oiseaux can be written to CDR and/or converted to any other format without any detour. 18 albums previously only available on CD have been added to trente oiseaux's digital catalog and 37 albums are currently available via Echopolite, whith more to come.
We hope that the partnership with Echopolite will make trente oiseaux's releases known to a new and larger audience, and we are pleased that the option of streaming our albums is now available to listeners world-wide.
According to best practice, label and distributor have agreed to adopt equal pricing: Echopolite charges € 7.99 for a full album in mp3 format and € 9.99 in FLAC format ( which is less than their standard pricing ), trente oiseaux charges € 9.99 for an album as either download or CD. For Echopolite's pricing for single track and streaming subscriptions, please visit their website.
The direct links from this website to our online store do not work any more because of some important technical changes we had to make, and and it is not clear yet if and when we will be able to update them - there is a lot of other things to do right now.
